If you have a myStevens username and password, you have access to many of the tools and resources available to students on campus.

You are a member of the Stevens community, and therefore are entitled to all the articles and books you may need, including some we may not hold.

And if you ever have a question, please get in touch! The Librarians are here for you.

Databases & Off-Campus Access

The first step to using Library databases: Log into myStevens!

Note: Do not use a VPN.

If you can't access one database but you can get into others, that might be a proxy problem on our end. Contact Romel Espinel (Web Services Librarian, for assistance. However, if you can't get into any of them, that likely indicates that your employer may have a firewall set up. We recommend trying to get access from your home computer.

Find our list of databases under the Find tab or just under the main search bar on the Library homepage.

Who to ask for help:

Document Delivery Services

The Library has access to a lot of articles, but not, alas, everything ever written.

To order a copy of an article that is not held by us, find the article in the Library catalog (for best results, search for the full title within quotation marks), and then click the button to "Request item from Interlibrary Loan." If you have questions, contact the Interlibrary Loan (ILL) Department.

Note: The Library does not retrieve books for off-campus students or send out our own copies. What we recommend is using the ILL program at your local public library to request the book(s) you need. Almost every library participates in ILL; if it's not included on their website, call and ask directly for the ILL department.

Thesis Formatting & Submission

If you complete a master's thesis for your program, you will have to submit copies to the Library so that your work can become part of the school's special collections, and available to Stevens students in perpetuity.
